In one of the most inspiring passages of the book of Ephesians, we are told that when Christ ascended, he gave gifts to his people. But what are these gifts? Surprisingly, they are people. First and foremost they are the apostles and prophets, but they are also "the evangelists, the pastors and teachers".
If you are called to ministry, then you are a gift which Christ is making to his church. We often think of a ministry as being something which God gives to you, but in Ephesians 4:11-13, we see that you and your ministry are given by God to the church. That puts things in a very different light. It raises the question: How can I become the best possible gift for Christ to give to his church? That question is at the heart of what Oak Hill does.
